Matt Brown

I met him at a Minor League game at Jack Russell Memorial Stadium in Clearwater, Florida in 1993, when the Fort Myers Miracle came to play the Clearwater Phillies.

As I'm reading the Miracle's team roster, looking for Matt, his jersey number matched the guy I was looking at, the problem was my card showed a black player and the guy in front of me was white. My brother and I were talking about it, thinking that maybe he was released or promoted and a new player took his number. Matt overheard us and asked "do you have my mistake card?" I told him yes and then he came over to sign it and he added a little message on the back of the card.
Unfortunately, I didn't have the Michael Brown card above, which actually shows Matt Brown.

Matt signed a 1991 Classic Best card #93.
